This book will allow you to understand the sometimes odd and crazy sounding language that us climbers speak. It has great illustrations and easy to understand explainations about those words that your family may just not get.
Leave it on your coffee table or in your college dorm room to impress your friends.
You can find it on www.amazon.com and http://www.mountaineersbooks.org
I was lucky enough to assist on a word or two on crack climbing.
Thanks and get outside!
